Fred Parris & The SatinsFred Parris & The Satins ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $7.99
The Five Satins were always one of the classiest groups of the doo wop era – and they really continue that legacy here in a wonderful set of modern soul tracks from the early 80s – a record that's got all the careful poise and polish of other excellent Elektra soul albums from the same period! Lead singer Fred Parris is firmly out front – and the group's a quartet – but the approach here draws on older harmony strengths, and works things through a sweet set of contemporary R&B charts – very groovy sounds that are light years away from the style of the group back in the 60s! Titles include the great stepper "Let Me Be The Last One", an excellent version of "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", and the cuts "Loving You Would Be The Sweetest Thing", "I'll Be Seeing You", and "Breaking Up". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Spanish Harlem – Beautiful Soul Music From The Heart Of New York's Spanish Harlem ... LP
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of the more obscure artists who recorded singles for some of the smaller Fania-held labels – and often focusing on tunes that drew more from late 60s soul and funk than they did from any Latin rhythms of the time. The singers are especially wonderful – and often hit a vibe that's right up there with some of Joe Bataan's best of the period – richly soulful, but often deeply personal too – never as polished as chart soul, and often showing a grittier, more realistic style that's totally great – especially when mixed with instrumentation as tight as this! Titles include "Reflections Of My Life" by 125th Street Candy Store, "On Old Broadway" by 107th Street Stickball Team, "Don't Be Afraid" by Lebron Brothers, "Central Park" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Heaven" by Tito Ramos, "Your Smile" by Parris, "Some Lonely Heart" by Ronnie Marks, "There's No Girl" by Olivieri, "Maria Maria" by King Nando, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Nitty Boo Boo" by The Nitty Sextette, "Lonely Has Been My Day" by Ralphie & The Latin Lovers, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Russell Cohen & The New Yorkers, and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Ralfi Pagan.

✨✧ VariousSound Signature Presents – These Songs That Should’ve Been Out On Wax By Now Part 2 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great idea for a series – contemporary tracks from the Detroit underground – all waiting to be issued as singles by the Sound Signature label – but all delayed because of the big backlog at pressing plants in these "vinyl madness" years! We're huge fans of the CD format – so really, the presentation here hardly matters to us – and in fact, having all these great tracks together is way more satisfying than digging them up on 12" singles – as we can really immerse ourselves in the music, and really just be flabbergasted by all the untapped genius working in the Motor City these days! The sound is even better than Sound Signature material from a decade ago – as the songs soar beautifully, with an even more righteous vision – and really gets us excited at the possibilities for the scene in years to come. There's no individual notes on the tracks, but this second volume features tracks by Tony Allen, Carl McIntosh, Theo Parris, Marcellus Pittman, The Unit, Duminie Desporres, DJ Kemit, and Andrew Ashong.

Man ParrishHip Hop, Be Bop (Don't Stop) (ext)/Heatstroke (club) ... 12-inch
Importe/12, 1982. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A classic electro groove – and one of the tracks that's a contender for the origin of the word "hip hop"! A very nice groove with an early Arthur Baker feel, and the kind of cut that we slept on during the 80s, but which sounds totally great today! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Theo ParrishParallel Dimensions ... CD
Sound Signature, 2000. New Copy ... $11.99
Amazing work from Detroit future house genius Theo Parrish! Parallel Dimensions couldn't be a more appropriate title for the set – as Parrish takes the languorous, hypnotic elements learned from years in the Detroit house scene and blends those loops and beats with a rich tapestry of distorted organic sounds and rhythms. Dissonant horns, keys and chanted vocals filter throughout these long numbers – sort of holding the groove together for the trippier soundscapes. The vibe is wholly unique – going way beyond a simple dancefloor groove – into territory that works on a deeper, headier level! A signature statement from the hugely talented Theo Parrish! Tracks include "So Now What", "Anansies Dances", "Serengeti Echoes", "Reaction To Plastic", "Space Ghosts", "Brain", the 12-plus minute epic "Summertime Is Here", Brain", "Violet Green" and more! CD

Theo ParrishSound Signature Sounds Vol 2 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2007. New Copy ... $11.99
Spare sounds from the Detroit scene – the kind of grooves that Theo Parrish and his scene have been making for years, and really opening up the frontiers – even when the rest of the world may not have been looking! The sounds here are spare and spacey, but still mostly rhythmic – that post-techno sound from the Detroit underground, almost as influenced by jazzier styles of years past – but set loose in a vibe that's certainly 21st Century overall! The collection brings together tunes that were mostly issued as singles, and include collaborations with Dwele and trumpeter John Douglas – on tracks that include "Dirt Rhodes", "Rain For Jimmy", "I Can Take It", "Suns Of Osiris", "Get Got", "Instant Insanity", and "Timeislafincharunninout".

✨✧ VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature – Black Jazz Records 1971 to 1975 ... CD
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... $13.99 18.99
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his mix here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. Cuts include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. CD

✨✧ Theo ParrishBaby Steps EP (Early Byrd/Walking Thru The Sky/Lake Shore Drive) ... 12-inch
Sound Signature, 1999. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early work from underground genius Theo Parrish – but still already a pretty great vision of all of his great grooves to come! "Early Byrd" has a skittish snapping snare, which then leads into some great sampled sounds from Donald Byrd during the Larry Mizell years – not exactly early in Donald's career, but a great match for the soaring spirit of the tune! "Walking Thru The Sky" is maybe a bit darker – spare bass and beats, peppered with keyboards and muted vocal – all like some excellent moody track from the post Chi-house years! "Lake Shore Drive" finishes up – with a crackling, classy groove – straightforward house, but with some waves of sound that bring a nice depth next to the keyboards! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Theo ParrishSound Sculptures Volume 1 ... CD
Sound Signature, 2007. New Copy 2 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Sound Sculptures is a fantastic name for the approach that Theo Parrish takes here – because although his music is clubby, and does feature beats and keyboards, there's also so much more going on too – especially in this extended set that moves past the straighter modes of some of Theo's singles, and really shows us what a visionary he can be! Parrish is a name mentioned in the same territory as forward-thinking artists like 4Hero or Osunlade – and like both of them, he's got a completely unique, completely individual approach – one that moves way way past simple dance music, to take inspiration from decades of previous culture, and forge an amazing new path forward in sound! Theo's at the controls throughout – and the album features guest appearances from MonicaBlaire, Alena Waters, and Warren Harris – on titles that include "They Say", "Flotation Device", "Second Chance", "Twisted Friskie Biscuits", "The Rink", "Galactic Ancestors", "Soul Control", and "Synthetic Flemm". 2CD set has a lot of music – more than the vinyl – with lots of cool interludes and other bits too!
